twist and turn, scrape, squeak and melodic (reviews: Anomic Aphasia)

Brittle? Tough and dense? Accessible and captivating? Exhilarating? Or verging on lyrical? John Eyles at All About Jazz gives ‘Anomic Aphasia’ (SLAMCD 559) with Han-earl Park, Catherine Sikora, Nick Didkovsky and Josh Sinton ☆☆☆☆½: The guitarists’ [Nick Didkovsky’s and Han-earl Park’s] two very different styles could have clashed, but they find ways of fitting them […]

Download of the Day at All About Jazz: Catherine Sikora, Ian Smith and Han-earl Park (Cork, 04–04–11)

A live recording from ‘Saturday The Fringes’ mainstay Han-earl Park. This is quality improv jazz, the kind I often feature on ‘Saturday The Fringes,’ but something about this album, I dunno, just seemed to have crossover appeal. Plus, I’m addicted to the album. So, we’re giving it a weekday slot on the download schedule. The […]

Download of the Day at All About Jazz: Paul Dunmall, Han-earl Park and Mark Sanders

Free jazz, in no uncertain terms. I don’t know what it is about Han-Earl’s groups’ sounds. Ten seconds in, I think to myself, “Man, this isn’t my thing.” But by the time the tune is over, I realize that I’m totally into it and enjoying it. If a musician can convert my ears within the […]

more CD reviews: io 0.0.1 beta++

More reviews of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) including Vittorio’s big thumbs-up at MusicZoom where he hails the recordings as a “total hymn to modernity”, in which the human musicians “throw themselves with passion on the ideas from the inanimate object”, and the listener will be “fully repaid by that which is a successful experiment”: […]

All About Jazz Italia: Mathilde 253

Charles Hayward defies the laws of physics, Ian Smith blows particles into space, Lol Coxhill contributes to the celestial harmony, and my playing is like a pulsar! Vincenzo Roggero gives Mathilde 253 (SLAMCD 528) an astro-poetic spin at All About Jazz Italia: Le percussioni di Charles Hayward sono impulsi, fremiti di pelli, vibrazioni di metalli […]
